What would you do if your best friend punched you? A wild mashup of character comedy, clown, drag and live music exploring the most emo emotion: teenage anger.
It’s 2006, and David is preparing for the gig of a lifetime: headlining Sticky Floors, the coolest under-16s band night in the Bay Area.
David’s, like, super mature for a fourteen-year-old – he reads Sartre, totally gets current affairs, and has the artistic integrity never to use Limewire. But he can’t understand why his bandmate is being such an asshole! So David has to embark upon his music career alone, armed with his electric guitar, drum kit, loop station, and an unwavering commitment to rock.
Developed as part of Starting Blocks 2023, Laurie Stevens’s debut show explores teenage anger – and where it goes when we choose not to punch back.
